Ben and Katie break-up in the lead up to his thirtieth birthday. He doesn't want to show anyone how much the break-up has affected him, he only stating to friends that their time together had taken its course. His friends not only want him to get back into the dating scene, but just want him to get out and have fun, which generally means going to the bars. Ben, however, comes to the conclusion that he has never really enjoyed the bar scene, and takes a stance that he will no longer spend his time at such places, and beyond taking his dog Schnitzel out for her walks, extends it to that he won't go out at all. That self-imposed shut-in status may include not going to the imminent bachelor party and wedding of one of his best friends, Jim, which may negatively affect his friendships in their totality.

A Comedy with Charm.

It took a truly talented team to create a film of this magnitude. Perfectly balancing bro- comedy and heartfelt relatability, Ben's at Home transports you into a world that looks like yours but is somewhat fantastical.

The situations and people that ben interacts without throughout this movie make it seem like another day in our lives, but the way that they are so article and humorously handled creates a world all it's own. Amazing dynamic between all the actors, making it believable and wonderful. Schnitzel's performance was notably exceptional.

Minimal sets, a small budget, an incredible group of actors, and an outstanding script. This is not one to miss.
